On Wednesday night, Vito started acting strange. The diarrhea and vomiting started Thursday. He also stopped eating. On Friday he was at the vet. Because his vitals were fine, and he showed no obvious discomfort, it was assumed he caught a bug. He looked better yesterday, but then he was worse this morning.
Vito’s stomach is compartmentalized and there is torsion. There may or may not be a blockage at the beginning of his small intestine. Torsion is rare in a small dog. It can be fatal in large dogs.
Vito is undergoing surgery right now to see if it can be fixed.
Please, I need your healing thoughts sent his way.
Please, Vito, you have to be Ok. Who will protect us if you leave?
